  1. Vinyl flooring is durable and time-tested, maintaining its beauty under heavy foot traffic and use. It is moisture and stain resistant, so spills can be easily removed. When compared with alternative materials, vinyl offers an attractive installed cost with economical maintenance over the life of the floor.Broxbourne Flooring

  2. The first misconception we'd like to dispel is that epoxy coatings do not paint. A latex acrylic substance is used to paint the garage floor. Many well-known paint manufacturers provide paint that contains a little amount of epoxy and refer to it as 1-Part epoxy paint. It has higher adherence and durability than regular acrylic paint, but it is not an epoxy.
